Your 18-inch doll will look fabulous in this gorgeous Spring Suit from Little Miss Muffett!
The ensemble comprises a Jacket and Dress, and to accessorize, a bonus Beret and Scarf. The fully lined Jacket has topstitched, front contouring princess seams, a stand-up Mandarin Collar, pretty ruffled Center Front edges, a double ruffled Hem edge and long Sleeves with ruffled Cuffs. The Jacket closes at Center Front with hook & loop tape and is finished with 3 small buttons.
The Dress Skirt continues with layered ruffles to give a graded ruffle appearance from the Jacket through the Skirt. The fitted Dress Bodice has a dropped waist, is fully lined and continues with the same topstitched, front contouring princess seams as the Jacket. Ruffled Shoulder Straps are stitched to the back of the square neck edge and are attached to the front with small buttons echoing those of the Jacket.
The Beret has a topstitched seam which gives the edge a rounded appearance. The opening edge is bound with bias cut binding and a small ribbon bow is attached at the binding seam to finish. The long, narrow serape style chiffon scarf is finished with jewels.
